It surprises me, that leaders from non-democratic countries are invited to a royal wedding in a democratic country

A wedding is not really a state visit, but a happy gathering with family and friends. For royals that includes leaders of other countries. But I see it as a wrong signal to invite leaders, who suppresses their populations.

It reminds me of the swedish king and his recent remarks, which didn't particularly make him popular in his own country

Thanks for the clarification although I disagree.

I&#39;m sorry, but since when has Bahrein surpressed it&#39;s people? I&#39;m confused. Could you please explain you logic??

In february, when the swedish king and queen visited Brunei, the king made some favourable remarks on the sultan and his relations with the population:

http://pub.tv2.no/nettavisen/verden/article184342.ece

Afterwards he had to apologize as a consequence of criticism put forward by several Swedes. In this article, a professor even argues, that the king ought to abdicate:

Interesting, but since they trade with them, why wouldn&#39;t they?

It was not my intention to turn this board into a discussion of human rights etc. But I honestly find it remarkable, that the SRF with its previous relations to former dictator Franco to be on friendly terms with an now reigning absolute monarch. That&#39;s all.

As to Bahrein, just to give an example of the suppression of the people:

Lots of points to make&#33;

Firstly, thanks for the links. I shall check them later.

Quote:

A wdding may well be just friends and family for some people, but for others it also includes business associates, those people who have to be invited because somebody else was invited etc. In royal circles, the list gets long. It is also an occasion at which people can talk behind the scenes without the pressure of media (for example) reporting the outcome of meetings with an acknowledged agenda. There are no political reprecussions to worry about but an opportunity for (how I hate this word) networking.

A wrong signal? No, I don&#39;t think so. So much can be resoved through discussion and compromise. The doors should always be kept open to this.

And with respect to Bahrain - well, democracy in the middle east is not as advanced as elsewhere however, Bahrain isn&#39;t one of the worst. Added to which, not everyone shares the US philosophy of exporting democracy and valuing it as much as they (the Americans) do.

Granted, &#39;suppressing populations&#39; is slightly different from actual democracy. Again, Bahrain (your example) is not one of the worst offenders. It happens all over the world to one extent or another. This doesn&#39;t make it right, but it doesn&#39;t preclude attendance at a wedding.

I could go on for longer but this gives you an overview of my thoughts.

Additionally, not being a signatory of CEDAW does not automatically mean the suppression of people. The list you have provided is not comprehensive. If we are woring on the basis of exclusion for not signing treaties, there are a few others that I personally believe should rank higher than CEDAW, as important as it may be.

But as you say, this is not the board for such a discussion.
